FIFA President Sepp Blatter Hints At Increased Term To Finish 'His Mission'

FIFA President Sepp Blatter "has given his strongest hint yet that he plans to stay on in the role past 2015 and finish 'his mission,'" according to the BBC. The 77-year-old Swiss "also wants to increase the term for a president from four years to eight." Blatter: "I feel young enough to be in this office and to make this office a success. It keeps you young also if you've got a mission -- and I've got a mission." Asked if he would stand again in 2015, he said, "My intention is to finish this mandate" (BBC, 10/23).
